Fantastic job here JP, I really like the way you wrapped the tank, great idea with incredible results! The cab re-work look great too, nice combo, well done.

What did you use to create the seams in the tank sections?

Hey, Jim

I used another piece of aluminum flashing like a flexible ruler taped around the tank then carefully scribed the lines in (I actually used a scribe tool, but you could use the back side of a utility knife blade. I experimented on a scrap piece first!....). it took about 6 passes for each "seam" to be visible/realistic enough. As long as you put only moderate pressure, even light pressure on the first two passes, the lines have less tendency to go off course.  each section is 8 scale feet.

Thanks, it worked well! I used that technique on the stainless fender on 1/87 scale tankers I did, takes a fair bit of pressure to scribe them in, when it works, looks great tho!

Looks like it`s missing side marker lights on the trailer and steps on the fuel tanks. Other than that, a super build. I wish I could build that good. I never would have thought to do what you did to build that trailer. That pipe was genius.  8)

very nice...if you wanted a "round tube" trailer, I suggest using stainless steel piping.  Here in WI this can be picked up cheaply at farm sales when the milking equipment is sold.
